 The word Analogy is derived from greek word, Analogia meaning proportion. It's basic meaning is a proportional comparison between two partially similar things. Both things might have similar meaning but their origin is not similar. Analogy is practised in order to deduce a similarity in both aspects for the purpose of clarification or justification. Analogy plays a significant role in decision making, perception, creativity and communication.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
